Thank you
  Thanks


I want to say 'thank you' to those who have helped in the past or are currently helping me to keep this small club up and running.

hungflagFirst of all thanks to my family for their tolerance, and their sacrifice if I sometimes spend more time with this hobby than with them.

scotflagThanks to Eddie Boyd from Scotland for his volunteer webmaster work. With his help the site looks much better than before. He also corrects my English and helps to keep the pages consistent.

hungflagThanks to Gergo Macsi from Hungary, who created the first chess piece set at the very beginning.

surnflagThanks to Henk Chang from Suriname, who has helped me a lot maintaining the English speaking interface of the server, who has checked and corrected my poor English, and helped me to plan the next improvements with his great correspondence chess experience.

usaflagThanks to Michael Keating for making freely available the MyChessViewer Java application that handles the games of tournaments on the Events page.

hungflagThanks to Pal Benyovszki from Hungary. He works on the German translations of the server. This will let German speaking players to enter and play in the club. He is the first member of the German Language Team.

And to all the players who help my work with criticisms and suggestions.

I welcome every help players can shoulder. I've written a separate page dealing with this, the Volunteering page.

King Shehran and Sessa ebn Daher

As the tail says there was a king in India, called Shehran, dominating on everything, but his tedium. He was bored in the morning, noon and at night, all every day, until he fell ill because of it.

Sessa ebn Daher, his court wise man, to heal the king, invented a new game, called it chess. The game was brilliant, the king has recovered from the illnes after the first game.

- What do you want as a reward? - asked Shehran.

- A few grains of wheat only: put one grain on the first square of the chessboard, then double it on the next squares - said Sessa ebn Daher.

- Humble request! - smiled the king, but finally couldn't perform it.

The number of the wheat grains was 18 trillion, 446 billiard, 744 billion, 73 milliard 709 million, 551 thousand 615, which is approximately 700 thousand million tonnes.
